* Apparently, spending several hundred thousand years suffering a FateWorseThanDeath mellowed Draconus from ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' out a bit. All who knew of his legendary cruelty feared his return to the world, but among the first things he does [[spoiler: when he comes back is making friends with the mentally challenged Ublala Pung]].

* This frequently happens with military officers in between major wars. A few notable examples from American history include UsefulNotes/AndrewJackson, who served as a messenger during the UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution while a teenager, then went on to become a General in the Main/WarOf1812. Quite a few junior officers got their first experience in the UsefulNotes/MexicanAmericanWar before going on to become prominent figures during the UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar, including Robert E. Lee and UsefulNotes/UlyssesSGrant. The same goes for the UsefulNotes/SpanishAmericanWar giving young officers experience for UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, including the commander of the American forces in WW1 General John "Black Jack" Pershing. World War I also served in this capacity for UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, giving officers like UsefulNotes/DwightDEisenhower (though he trained troops rather than seeing action himself in WW1,) and [[FourStarBadass George S. Patton]].

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', this applies to [[spoiler: Laslow, Selena, and Odin, who are older versions of the second-gen characters Inigo, Severa, and Owain from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', having matured out of a lot of their more negative character traits, while still retaining their core personalities.]]

** When we first met Han Solo in ''A New Hope'', [[AgentMulder he was highly skeptical of the Force and the Jedi Knights]]. By the time of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', [[SkepticNoLonger he's basically mellowed out with age, accepting the Force and its universal power]].

* Obi Wan Kenobi over the course of the ''Franchise/StarWars'' films, who starts off as an apprentice to Qui Gon Jin, but becomes more of a wise and experienced Jedi master, culminating in him teaching Luke, his [[APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil former]] [[WeUsedToBeFriends padawan's]] son, about the Force in the beginning of [[ANewHope episode IV]]. Luke goes through a similar development going from a naive teenager in episode IV, to a wise, up-and-coming Jedi master himself in [[ReturnOfTheJedi episode VI]].
